Whether you’re seeking an extra delish refreshment or the city’s kookiest bar, we’ve got the watering hole for you. We’ve eliminated the weak and championed the greatest, strangest, niche-est bars in Los Angeles just for you.


Opened 2013, Dirty Laundry is the fifth bar in the legendary Houston brothers’ repertoire. Located at the site of Silent Film Actor, Rudolph Valentino’s secret bar, Dirty Laundry is a Jazz Age underground speakeasy in the heart of Hollywood.  The cocktails are creative and seasonal, and the DJ booth has seen the likes of Twin Shadow and Thom Yorke. Dirty Laundry is great for evening drinks or an after-party.

No Vacancy is housed in a refurbished Victorian-era mansion in the heart of Hollywood, which formerly served as the school where Cecil B. DeMille and Charlie Chaplin’s children went to school. The decor is old-Hollywood inspired; red velvet banquettes, cafe seating, and dark wood paneling. Depending on the night of the week, entertainment can include burlesque dancers, fire swallowers, tightrope walkers, and live music on the porch. Past artists to grace the stage or DJ booth include Wayne Newton, Warren G., Mr. Little Jeans, Skrillex, Florence of Florence and the Machine, Diplo and many more.

The drinks are innovative and delectable, and definitely not to be missed out.

Accomplice’s craft cocktail program boasts punch bowls and an affordable happy hour. The vibe there was friendly, and it was apparent that the bar acts as a local to the locals. In addition, Accomplice has some unique bar bites, such as corndogs and steak fries to fulfil your pekishness. Situated right next door is Little Fatty’s, where you can also order for takeaway.
